Biographie

 

Alëxone was born in 1976. He lives and works in Paris.

 

The work of Alëxone is marked by the indelible mark of graffiti. He made himself known at the beginning of the 90s with his "oediperies" which he realized then in the streets or elsewhere, which mix graffiti, refined calligraphy and elaborate in situ installation.

 

Alëxone has developed a very colorful phantasmagorical universe, inhabited by animals and strange characters whose extreme deformity he pushes. His work is meticulous and detailed, the result of regular and sustained work.

 

He paints mixed techniques on paper or cloth, the spectacle of a merged animal society, which makes the vox populi sound with a very demonstrative malice.

 

Alëxone paints acts of bravery. Between games of words and wit, in the hubbub of happy fictions and the whirlwind of colors spreads the spectacle of a fusion animal society, which makes the vox populi sound with a very demonstrative malice. If one quickly understands the hoarding of multiple referents among which graffiti, Byzantine art or comics, one will guess behind this Fantasia the depth of a specific balance, that of a labyrinthine frame against a background of playful rhetoric.
